On a first day crowded with possibilities, President Joe Biden took time Wednesday to send Congress a sweeping immigration proposal that could bring millions of undocumented immigrants out of the shadows, giving them a path to citizenship in a country that has accepted their labor but long w…

Joe Biden began his presidency Wednesday with an inaugural address that hit all the right notes. Pledging to heal a nation more deeply divided than at any point since the Vietnam War – if not the Civil War – he reaffirmed his campaign promises to be a leader for all Americans.

In voting Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump – for a second time – the House responded in the only responsible way it could to Trump’s outrageous encouragement of the domestic terrorists who invaded the Capitol last week.

WASHINGTON -- The three repulsive architects of Wednesday's heartbreaking spectacle -- mobs desecrating the Republic's noblest building and preventing the completion of a constitutional process -- must be named, and forevermore shunned. They are Donald Trump, and senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz.

Make no mistake: The surreal scene at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday that temporarily shut down the Electoral College vote count and led to at least one death was directly brought on by Donald Trump. He’s responsible for every critically injured person, every terrorized police officer and every …

Servility is an occupational hazard for any vice president, but Mike Pence has been especially obsequious in service to President Donald Trump. But will Pence’s sycophancy stretch to joining in Trump’s effort to overturn the results of the election they lost to President-elect Joe Biden and …

We have not heard much from the 44th president of the United States during the last four years. Now he has reappeared.

To paraphrase our first Republican president, our current one has practiced the pardon power with malice toward most and charity for few. His yuletide sack of pardons and commutations might leave the impression of a jailbreak of unprecedented proportions, but President Trump has in fact offe…

A new and potentially more contagious variant of the coronavirus has been detected in Britain and elsewhere. With the Trump administration continuing to do little to address the pandemic, state and local leaders have, again, been left to deal with this problem on their own.

With more than 100,000 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, cases still rising in most states, and health care workers overwhelmed, the U.S. is once again facing a crisis. In the weeks ahead, before vaccines can be widely distributed, health officials must manage their resources – medic…

Almost two years ago, Attorney General William Barr came to office with long experience, a reputation for competence and an expansive view of presidential power. In the age of Donald Trump, that was a dangerous combination. As Barr leaves office this month, it’s increasingly clear how much d…

It’s time to get serious. Miami County is now on of the many counties in Indiana experiencing a red-level health emergency. If we do not come together as neighbors, everyone’s livelihoods will be at risk.

Over the coming years, the inevitable slew of books on COVID will identify villains and heroes, missteps and moments of prescient action. History will metaphorically adorn some with clown shoes, and others with halos. Like the Great Depression, World Wars, or 9/11, COVID will bequeath us a b…

Maryland’s Gov. Larry Hogan, who seems to have found a second career in national political punditry if not office-seeking, offered a useful message for members of Congress this week including his fellow Republicans: Pass the compromise coronavirus economic relief package. “Every day I hear f…

In January, Joe Biden will take charge of an executive branch left in woeful disrepair. Practically every important federal institution has been scorched by four years of sustained assault by his predecessor – none more so than the State Department.

Every election season, pundits and politicians watch with keen focus the people of Middle America to gauge the heart’s desire of the Heartland. The influence of flyover America matters for those moments in time.

In the three months since President Donald Trump made Dr. Scott Atlas – a radiologist, not an epidemiologist or specialist in infectious diseases – his favorite source of ideas on how to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States has been racked with a record-setting third surge …

Her name was Judy – no point in making up a protect-her-privacy name for her at this point.

President-elect Joe Biden has made plenty of promises related to climate change and the environment. He has vowed to rescind or reverse some of the Trump administration’s moves to weaken regulations, which Columbia University’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law has numbered at 159. The pre…

WASHINGTON -- Three weeks before Election Day, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi what millions of Americans were thinking: Why was she refusing a White House offer of $1.8 trillion in covid-19 relief? "There are millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, they can'…

Leave it to Donald Trump and his Republican allies to spend more energy fighting nonexistent voter fraud than containing a virus that has killed 246,000 Americans and counting.

This country is closing in on two weeks since outgoing President Donald Trump was defeated at the polls. President-elect Joe Biden has only widened his lead since then, amassing 5 million more votes than the incumbent. He has far surpassed Trump in electoral votes with 290 at this writing an…

Given what we know about Donald Trump, it’s futile to urge him to accept defeat gracefully and put the welfare of the country above the gratification of his bruised ego. Nor would there be much point in calling on an incorrigibly dishonest president to stop serving up conspiracy theories abo…
